Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 863309
guess OS type from iso name or url
Last modified: 2012-10-24 15:24:28 EDT
Description of problem:
It would be nice if virt-manager tried to be a little clever
and guess OS type from the iso name or URL given to it.
If I am installing Fedora-*.iso there is a reasonable chance
that the OS is Linux/Fedora.
This RFE is kind of an extension of bug 736951 ...
Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup an install from a Fedora iso or url
1. virt-manager doesn't default OS type to Linux/Fedora
1. default to Linux
ISO filenames are somewhat unreliable, but it is possible to identify OS from the metadata fields in the ISO filesystem. libosinfo provides APIs & information required todo this.
Thanks for the report, I'm just gonna fold this into the 'use libosinfo' report

(On a somewhat related note I was wondering also
why Linux is listed as the last choice?)

Yeah that's weird, I fixed it upstream:
